A Towel, a Lesson and a Beautiful Swan

Today I learnt how to fold a towel into a swan shape! It really is true, is it not, that you are never too old to learn?

 

Mr B agrees with the sentiment but suggests that some things are more useful to learn than others. He is finding it hard to imagine to what use I will put my new found skill. 

 

My lesson in towel folding came at a poolside demonstration given by the housekeeping staff at our hotel.  I thought, what a good idea to let them show off for a bit. As well as the swan, they showed me how to make a crocodile and an elephant but only the swan looked vaguely as it should do. The hardest bit was keeping the towel tucked firmly under my chin while I folded in the sides. "Stronger! Stronger!" my teacher kept encouraging me. I think she meant "tighter" but I am not too sure...

 

I can't wait for the next time someone comes to visit us. There on the bed, instead of boring towels on the end of the guest bed, there will be two beautiful white towelling swans, swimming across the duvet.  Always provided I can remember how it's done...

It's getting VERY competitive out on our balcony as the sun goes down!

I too went to school in Kent where my Aunt worked as a dinner-lady. I got seconds sometimes thirds of my favourite pud, the said Gipsy Tart. My son’s a dentist!

Also, Anne always walked the long way home after Rangers so that I didn't have to walk alone down that lane in the dark. I've never forgotten that kindness...

As one of the Brownies who helped to plant that tree I vividly remember you telling us that you asked a tree expert what kind of tree he recommended!
